Subject: Black Peter
This is the best Black Peter I have ever heard.
Subject: This show is great
I love the dark star in this show. I think it's incredible.
Subject: "This is 1970, Jack. Not '56!"
At about the 15 second mark of Dire Wolf Pig twice sings "Gonna find her" ala Searchin', which might be the song request that prompted that comment.
Subject: in Kaua'i now listening to this
Just a cool band playing cool tunes in a cool ass place!! It's September 13, 2010... some 40 years later and they're still rocking it out here... the music will never stop.... Love you all and love archive... Lookin for some bill while i'm here....
OK, the recording... great sound for the time... Heard so many it's hard to compare anymore...but i'd put this close to the top...great sound, good energy, you can hear all the vocals really well and they are on cue...maybe not "smoking" but enthused no doubt, hell they're in Hawaii!!!

Subject: This is a five star show...
And likely a top ten for 1970!
Not an epic Dark Star, but from Good Lovin' through the top notch Lovelight, this really heats up! High energy and well played from start to finish, Black Peter and H2H are standout performances as well. Goodbear sound is A/A+
Subject: "This is 1970, Jack. Not '56!"
Hee hee... this is a really fun show. What a nice setlist.
Anyone else notice Bobby muttering "come on I wanna lay ya" under his breath about 16 secs into track 1?
Subject: Devo's Picks
This is a fantastic show, tight, crisp, clear, what everyone has already commented on.
As a side note, I'm fairly certain that the jam that cuts in during Lovelight is from the 70-02-11 Fillmore East show with the Allman Brothers.
Follow the tour: 1970
Its the Grateful Dead. Its Hawaii. Its 1970. Perfect crispy sound quality here. I love this band.
Subject: one of my favorites

Hard to hand is sick
Subject: Take a look at poor Peter...

Subject: aloha jerr
GD 1/23/1970 - such good sounds from Hawaii - never woulda thunk it w/o the archive.org folk - thx -- I'm an east coast meat eater born about a month after this show -- nice jem! Black Peter makes jerry sound sooooo young. The boyz are tight and on w/ some rippin licks...not the shizzle, but way worthy. 5
Subject: A standout show for sure
I am surprised there have not been more reviews of this show. It really is a continuation of the strong, wild, powerful, trippy shows from '68. What's available from '70 is a little more spotty but this one is a standout. China Cat has a nice long transition to a great Rider. Skip the yellow dog story. Bob never was able to tell a joke. Hard to Handle is always welcome from Pig. TOO is very hardcore and transitions long into Cryptical which transitions real nice into DS. The DS may be my favorite all-time from this era. Lovelight is very eventful with some early Jerry slide in the middle but something happens around 31:48 like a cut into a Jam... not sure what's going on there, but am curious. The sound quality is really good and you can even hear some audience, which always gives a SBD more life.
Subject: two points
Just thought I'd speak up. I was there for one of these two nights, been so long that I don't remember which night. Just wanted to point out that the Jefferson Airplane did not play that night. And the second comment was about the shows apparent lackluster. The Dead just hadn't become the popular item they were to be later. There was only about 75 people in the audience. Hard for a group to get really enthused about playing when there is such a small crowd. The auditorium would probably hold 2500 if it was filled to capacity. I still enjoyed the show a lot.
This is a great show one of the best from 1970 IMO , The dark star is magical and the Black peter is fanfuckintastic

Subject: Top Ten!
One of my first 1970 SBD's and it still stacks up well to the other 1970's I've heard later. Not a long show, and I imagine they had time constraints being on the bill with JA. But very strong playing has made this a well traded favorite.
The Black Peter is soulful and well sung. But the last segment is really where they cook. Nice long versions of The Other One and Dark Star- rare in 1970 to get both. Not as special as 2/13, but certainly gets you kind and with great Jerry jamming.
Some 1970 shows have weak spots, such as when Bobby attempts Green Grass, or Pig sings The Rub.
But this one grooves all the way. A nice sounding SBD too! Kick back and crank this one up.
BTW - this whole Hawaii run would make a nice Dick's Picks set, no? Tom Constanten's last shows with the Dead.
Dr. Flashback ;-)
I was all psyched up about this show, being Hawaii, being '70, being T.C.'s last two shows! Man, an Other One > Dark Star? Long lovelight? Give to me! The sound is very nice and crisp.
But here is now the truth, it has good moments, but I find it mostly dull. They sound like on autopilot mode. "Other One" and "St. Stephen" are delivered well, but not one you will say, 'Check this out!' to your friends. "Dark Star" just slugs along, never really finding a groove or even a space. "Lovelight" is just isn't that exiticing either. All in all, it's neither a good or bad show, just going thru the motions. Perhaps you will enjoy it for than I have, and please remember not trying to pick a fight, I am just giving you my honest review.
